This is probably a silly question, but, is there a significant difference between a multimedia desktop and a gaming desktop? That is, if I buy a gaming comp., will it be unsuitable for watching DVD?s and TV? Likewise, if I buy a multimedia comp., will the graphics card, etc., likely be insufficient to play current and next gen. games? My problem is that I want to buy a computer (perhaps a desktop) for college, one that can handle next-gen gaming, play DVD?s, and be used to watch TV. My confusion regarding gaming versus multimedia has made it difficult for me to properly research.
Please excuse my novice understanding of computer lingo, any help is greatly appreciated!
